Spring Registration for
Fall 2024

Registration opens for students according to their entry class and year level. Students should check the PeopleSoft Student Center for their registration appointment time or refer to the chart below. On the appointed day, registration opens at 7:30 a.m. Once registration is open to a student, the system remains available 24 hours a day.

Single Course Priority Registration
Registration will open to students 15 minutes prior to the times listed below to allow students to add a single course (or two half-credit courses) early and increase their chances of getting in. Simply check the one course you want to prioritize and press ‘Submit’ at 7:15 a.m. At 7:30 a.m., registration continues as normal allowing students to add up to four courses in total.

Students are encouraged to register as soon as registration is open to them to increase the likelihood of obtaining their choice of course and course section. Advising is required before registering and the advising period runs from March 25 to April 5. Students register themselves online through PeopleSoft Campus Solutions.

For connection and systems problems, students are encouraged to contact the Help Desk at 315-781-4357 or  helpdesk@hws.edu.

Students who have had a year level classification change will still be allowed to register with their entry class. Check your assigned registration appointment time in your PeopleSoft Student Center.

Non-Matriculated Student and Alumni Enrollment:
Students who are not candidates for a degree, including alumni, are admitted to courses only with both approval of the respective college’s dean and permission from the instructor, who determines their qualifications to undertake the work. Non-matriculated students must complete a Non-Matriculated Student Application Form and submit it to the respective Dean of the College, Smith Hall. Non-matriculated students are not admitted into courses until the first week of classes (August 26-30).


    • Fall Semester 2024 Drop/Add week is August 26-30.
    • Students are encouraged to discuss changes with their advisor in advance. An instructor’s signature is not required to add or drop a course during the first week of classes, unless the course is closed, the student does not meet pre-requisites, or the course carries the footnote "permission needed from Instructor."
    • After August 30 students should refer to the policy section on dropping and adding courses beyond the drop/add period.
    Information regarding registration, adding and dropping courses, and viewing class schedules, grades, course descriptions and schedules, may be found on the HWS PeopleSoft Website.
